Marks and reviews
Owned by Domaines Delon, Château Nénin embodies, according to the Delon family, "the expression of a great ageing Pomerol wine." This 19th-century estate was acquired by the Delon family in 1997 and underwent a major overhaul that has brought Château Nénin to the top of the Pomerol rankings.
Placed on the Pomerol plateau, the Château Nénin vineyard stretches across 32 hectares, 8 of which are devoted to the estate’s Grand Vin. The vines are planted on a mosaic of soils made up of clay, siliceous gravel, quartz, granite, basalt pebbles and iron residue.
The cool nights at the beginning of April led to frost. However, the damage was limited by the commitment of the teams and late pruning. A fairly dry spring with high temperatures allowed the vines to develop optimally. Summer temperatures created the risk of water stress, which was narrowly avoided thanks to the vineyard's ability to adapt and show resilience. Despite these extreme climatic conditions, the grapes reveal a rare freshness and roundness.
Cabernet Franc (36%).
This 2022 vintage is characterised by its freshness and ample tannins.
